The vision of the MDSD is an era of software engineering where modelling completely replaces programming i.e. the systems are entirely generated from high-level models, each one specifying a different view of the same system. The MDSD can be seen as the new generation of visual programming languages which provides methods and tools to streamline the process(More)
This paper presents an action selection method using fuzzy logic. The objective is to solve behaviour conflict in behaviour-based architectures for virtual agent navigation in unknown virtual environments. Two main problems have been identified: how to decide which behaviour should be activated at each instant; and how to combine the results from different(More)
Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) based on Web Services technology gained popularity because business work flows can easily be executed as an orchestration of Web Services. These Web Services are independently developed and may be internal or external. With increase in connectivity among the Web Services, security risks rise exponentially. Moreover the(More)
—Clustering has been proposed in numerous researches on web services due to its ability in enhancing computational efficiency. The objective of this paper is to present a review on web services clustering and to propose fuzzy clustering of web services' based on quality of service (QoS). A total of 49 manuscripts, collected from ISI, SCOPUS and Google(More)
Monitoring Quality of Service (QoS) compliance is an important procedure in web service environment. It determines whether users’ expectations are met, and becomes the vital factor for them to decide whether to continue paying for the service or not. The monitoring is performed by checking the actual services performance against the QoS stated in Service(More)
Ontology is an explicit representation of a particular domain of interest. This paper focuses on the inherent problem of intractability (data complexity) due to data capturing for heterogeneous sources. We proposed to follow the tradition of knowledge representation and reasoning processes to develop a Semantic Web. Building query systems is the ultimate(More)
This paper examines and analyzes different aggregation algorithms to improve accuracy of forecasts obtained using neural network (NN) ensembles. These algorithms include equal-weights combination of Best NN models, combination of trimmed forecasts, and Bayesian Model Averaging (BMA). The predictive performance of these algorithms are evaluated using(More)
